script to search your local TCE.dep files for a named TCE
« on: July 26, 2020, 10:08:39 PM »
firstly this is based a little on my poor memory of what a moderator supplied me years ago.
that script which I no longer had interacted with the repo.

this is a script that searches only your locally installed TCEs
it requires you to input the real name without the trailing .tcz

I stole a fair bit of coding from Rich forum post

I make it executable and have it in ~/.local/bin called searchtce
Code: [Select]
read -t 10 -p "input TCE without dot tcz please
grep -l $INPUT.tcz /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional/*.dep | cut -d/ -f6

I added timer of 10 seconds. Use copy and paste if you are a slow typer or remove the timer please

Here is an example

Code: [Select]
input TCE without dot tcz please

It should be clear that all files ending in .dep are the "hits"

My main reason for using it is to track down what is loading a target TCE

there may be other uses. Hope it helps someone
